As part of Mise Éire 1916, the Shamrock represents Ireland and the right to our own Nation. The golden shamrock in its' centre, represents the rebirth of a Nation after the Easter Rising of 1916.
The shamrock is a classic Irish icon, which is recognised the world over. Many view it as a symbol of luck, something the Irish have always been credited for!
St. Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, used the Shamrock to explain the mystery of the Holy Trinity to the native Irish, back in the 5th century. Its' three leaves represent Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, three deities in one.
This sterling silver shamrock comes complete with a 14ct gold smaller shamrock nestled in the centre, hung on an 18" sterling silver chain.
Size 12mm X 15mm
Matching Earrings are also available here.
